Land Rover introduced its Discovery Sport back in 2015, & it's gone on to become one of the brand's most popular models. Think of the Discovery Sport as a diet version of the full-fat Land Rover Discovery. It has many of the highlights & off-road prowess of its big brother, but costs a lot less & is currently the cheapest way to get a new Land Rover on your driveway.
The Land Rover Discovery Sport is the brand’s entry-level luxury SUV, below the mechanically related Evoque in price. For 2020, Land Rover hopes to maintain its popularity by giving the Disco Sport a thorough update. About 60% of the Discovery Sport's parts have been updated, making it feel almost like a full redesign, especially from the inside.
The 2-row crossover is more practical than the Evoque, helping to keep up the pressure on rivals such as the BMW X3. Yet the Discovery Sport in 2020 has more competition than ever – with premium SUVs such as the Audi Q5 & Mercedes-Benz GLC appealing to the heart, while practical but cheaper rivals such as the Hyundai Santa Fe & Skoda Kodiaq offer the same blend of 7-seat practicality in a good-to-drive & modern package. That said, the Discovery Sport still has all the advantages you get from less off-road-capable SUVs – such as a raised driving position & a more practical interior.
“Land Rover is about freedom, whether it is everyday adventures on the school run or taking you & your family beyond the road’s end, filling your lives with new experiences & discoveries in the great outdoors. The new Discovery Sport, the compact premium SUV, has been transformed to make it more efficient, technologically-advanced & practical, keeping its occupants safe & comfortable in any conditions.”
